My husband was under the care of Dr. Valdes for emergency open heart / Quadruple bypass. Not only did the good doctor save his life but, his bedside manner and obvious concern or my husband were above and beyond any care I have ever witnessed. I can never fully express or thank him for the compassion he and his staff extended to our family. This was a very frightening time for all of us but, Dr Valdes made it as easy as possible on all of us, especially my husband. He has our undying gratitude.
